and disabled citizens of san francisco and i can tell you i don't have a number or a statistic but the type of harassment was definitely present and extensive and i don't believe this applies obviously to landlords who don't abuse this, there are plenty of good landlords out there, we're not suggesting that there aren't, but certainly with the market being what it is in san francisco it places vulnerable tenants, particularly immigrants, many of who we heard speak today, i know seniors and other low income tenants did face a lot of these issues. so i'll go ahead and read briefly what the language is that would be added to this administrative code and just so folks can know exactly what it states. just a hearing on alleged wrongful endeavor to recover possessions through tenant harassment. upon receipt of a tenant report alleging wrongful endeavor to recover possession of the tenant's unit through harassment, the board through its executive director shall send a notice acknowledging receipt of the report and summarizing the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants regarding pos

corridor -- this plan took a long time to get through the process, even kind of in san francisco standards, you know. took about as long as the shelf life of zoning. so, i don't think it's unreasonable that we're now undertaking a plan in the same area, generally in the same area in some overlap. so, i'd just like to see that recognized somewhere in the plan that that's actually happening. i think it makes sense when people look back on it and ask that question, why are we looking at central corridor so soon after we've adopted this plan. i think there is legitimate reason for it. so, we should state that. >> any additional comment? okay, thank you. >> commissioners, it will place you under item 13 for case no. 2012.1315 t, amendments to the planning code adding new section 102.36.1 to establish an annual monitoring requirement for student housing conversions. >> good afternoon, president fong, members of the commission. cynthia hayward, planning staff. this ordinance was proposed by supervisor kim and i see that [speaker not understood] from her staff is here. so, with your permission i'd

miles east of san francisco, and the whole bay area has been impacted by a series of storms. the storm that's coming tonight, this will be the fourth storm in about a week, and we've seen, you know, downed power lines and trees and that kind of thing. at one point 340,000 people were without power, so with the storm coming tonight, this is the last thing this community needs. ashleigh? >> my lord. dan, it's a good thing no one ended up in that as they were driving. so i guess that's the light at the end of that tunnel. dan simon, thank you. chad, i want you to jump in here. i was reading through some of your information, chad. coy not believe it when i saw some of these location where is dan is and other people on the withest coast got one year's worth of rain in just a few days. >> in seven days. even mt. shasta, a pretty wet place, picked up 25 inches of rainfall in three separate storms. you add them all up. now all of a sudden that's like nine months' of rain in one location and other sports we know picked up almost a year's worth of rain in one week. now it's running off. there is
for in san francisco as you well know, so the interest we have here in getting involved in that planning process and i know commissioner tan and commission near hyde were at that presentation at planning, we do want to get in as early as possible so that our permittees and our process sort of engages early on to make sure we don't have neighbor problems, and that we have healthy night life, so the planning commission didn't take any action at their meeting but the west soma community plan will continue to move along in the coming months and will eventually change the zoning that's been static in west soma for years, so staff will continue to keep you informed and if commissioner tan or hyde have anything to add, you can do it now or i can finish my report. >> i have a question just on this. so, this plan has been ten years in the making and this goes to you and you and possibly you, so this plan's been ten years in the making and they've come up with all of these recommendations. have they taken into consideration in your best guess changing times, like the city is coming back, we have l
a lot of problems in many parts of san francisco, particularly now with the more restrictive -- the hiss thor cal preservation commission and more scrutiny on historic buildings as to their preservation, as was the case before. * and given this scrutiny, which i think is good, we do want to preserve the past and preserve buildings from the past. we may have to allow in return for the preservation the owners of these buildings a little more flexibility in creating something that's economically feasible. otherwise, you have an older building that's in great disrepair, falling apart, a use that is not a credit to the neighborhood oftentimes and, you know, sometimes conditions in the case of housing that are not good ones for the residents there. so, i think -- i'm not saying wide open anything that's even vaguely eligible, but i think we have to kind of look at this carefully and see if there is something we could craft that would allow some flexibility in the various areas of zoning to allow something that's maybe legal but nonconforming to continue in this use in return for, you know, the
